Tomorrow’s Engineers focuses on working with the engineering community to improve the collective impact of our outreach activity. A new website, launched in January 2021, brings together resources to support practitioners in getting the most out of their engineering engagement activity. It’s for anyone who funds or delivers engineering engagement activities and is designed to help support improved practice.
The Tomorrow’s Engineers website hosts information and guidance on a range of topics curated from across the engineering community. Its aim is to build and share a range of tips, resources, guidance and evidence to help improve practice, as well as highlight collective campaigns and joined up activities.
The Tomorrow’s Engineers Code, launched in October 2020, invites companies and organisation to commit to work toward common goals to increase the diversity and number of young people entering engineering careers. Signatories to The Code, organisations with UK operations that fund, design and/or deliver engineering-inspiration activities, sign 4 pledges aiming to inspire connection, drive inclusion, showcase engineering and improve impact.
Tomorrow’s Engineers continues to work with the engineering community to produce inspiring careers resources, which are available to order or download via Neon – a schools-facing site that brings STEM to life through real-world engineering.
Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, which takes place in early November, has taken place annually since 2013 and is all about showcasing modern engineering careers to young people, their teachers, parents and other influencers.
Neon brings together the UK's best engineering experiences and inspiring careers resources to help teachers bring STEM to life with real-world examples of engineering.
It helps teachers make links with employers and STEM professionals, build a plan of inspiration for students and improve knowledge of opportunities in engineering.
Neon curates the most brilliant experiences (only featuring those that meet their quality criteria) so teachers know these are engaging for their students, are linked to up-to-date careers information and highlight real-world applications of engineering. It is also home to the Tomorrow’s Engineers careers resources and inspiring case studies of real engineers in a range of roles.
Neon is powered by the team behind Big Bang and Tomorrow’s Engineers, working in partnership with the engineering community to inspire the next generation.
